Problem in configuring HP Laserjet 1200


I'm using an FC3 in my laptop and have upgraded the system to fully new packages by using the default yum. Now I find that there are some problems in using my locally connected HP LaserJet 1200 printer. It always prints very slowly under linux while it can print very fast under Windows on the same laptop. I examine the printer driver in 'printconf-gui'. It's automatically configured driver is Postscript, but it is claimed also that 'It is not the recommended driver'. When I changed to another driver (e.g., ljet4), it is then claimed that 'The recommended driver is Postcript'. What's wrong with it?

See that link. I guess the HP Laserjet 1200 should use plxmono driver.

Yes, the printer works very well when I change the driver to plxmono. Thank you very much!
